Taliban’s Education Minister, Habibullah Agha met with Roza Otunbayeva Head of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), and discussed the recent development in the education sector in Afghanistan on Thursday.

Minister Habibullah Agha has said to UNAMA Chief Roza Otunbayeva that the Taliban group has had “considerable achievements” in the areas of education, security, and economy, and the world should know their responsibility towards war-torn Afghanistan.  

In the announcement of the Taliban’s ministry of education, it has been quoted the representative of the United Nations that this organization will unconditionally continue to help the education sector in Afghanistan.

This comes as schools and universities remain closed for female students across the country with no sign of their resumption in the near future.

The international community and aid organizations have repeatedly called on the Taliban authorities to reopen schools and universities, but Afghanistan’s de facto regime has not yet provided provide a positive response to the demand of the people of Afghanistan and the international community at large.

On Wednesday, the ministry of higher education announced that the new academic year for male students at public universities and educational institutions in colder regions will officially start on March 6 of the current year. However, the statement did not point out the resumption of universities for female students, which has become a very controversial topic among the Taliban senior members as well.

Prior to this, some Taliban officials have said that by the new academic, they will find a solution to the education of female students and will share it with the public accordingly.
